select the "Start Online Registration" button found at the bottom of the page.
To request an item through Interlibrary Loan, you must first go through a one-time online registration process in order to identify
your institution to the Library of Congress.
Registration has three purposes:
After registering online, perhaps with a delay as CALM Division staff
research your library's status, you will be sent a Username and Password via
email. Please use this information when making all future ILL requests
from the Library of Congress.
Your Username will likely be based on the OCLC symbol for your
library (please supply that information when registering online). CALM Division
will verify the symbol against OCLC's Policy Directory as well as your library's
name and address against the latest ALA Directory. If necessary, they will
contact you by phone to verify any information in question. If you do not
receive an email notification from the ILL Coordinator, it means your registration
information has not been authenticated.
A Password will also be assigned for use with your Username.
It will not be a dictionary word, so please save a copy of it in a secure place
for future use. You will not be allowed to change your password. However, If
misplace your password, you may re-register. The ILL system will encrypt your
password, so that it remains secure.
